Bronco Raptor News

Discuss new updates and news about the all new Ford Bronco Raptor here.
You'll have to wait until next year if you didn't act quickly enough. Ford is on somewhat of a hot streak lately. People can't seem to get enough of the Blue Oval's products, with popular vehicles like the Mustang Mach-E already sold out for 2022. It's a similar story with the Maverick, so it comes as no surprise that the all-new 2022 Bronco Raptor is following in its siblings' footsteps. Sources close to the matter have said that the range-topping Bronco is no longer available to order for the 2022 model year. Deemed a specialty vehicle, Dearborn has decided to limit production of the Raptor in its debut year. A leaked dealer document uncovered in February explained the "Hand Raiser" program would be utilized for Bronco Raptor orders...
Just like the Ford F-150 Raptor, Ford’s Bronco Raptor is expected to be a lot of fun off road. Earlier this year, the company said this new Bronco variant would make at least 400 hp from its 3.0-liter turbocharged V6. Well, Ford’s boss Jim Farley took to Twitter to tell the masses that the upcoming Bronco Raptor overshot projections and will send 418 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque through the 10-speed transmission. While the Bronco Raptor’s smaller 3.0-liter V6 is in the shadow of the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that powers the Ford F-150 Raptor, it does add a significant performance boost to the Bronco lineup. Currently, Ford’s Bronco is offered with a 2.3-liter turbocharged I4 that makes 300 hp and a 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 that makes 330...
So much detail has gone into Ford's new off-road monster. We're suckers for a good Easter egg, and after a long day in the desert, we realized Ford has dropped some into the new Bronco Raptor. Frustratingly, the realization came while photographing the off-roader at the end of the day and just before our time was up with it. We asked if there were more, but the answer was just a nod and a chuckle as they took the keys back. In other words, we're going to have to wait until we have a full week to test drive the Bronco Raptor to try and find the rest. In the meantime, these are the Easter eggs we saw out in the desert. The first Easter egg we saw on the Bronco isn't the coolest, but it's still pretty slick. Due to the roof being...
Well, so much for the wishful thinking that the BRaps will be out starting 6/27 like they said! Another pushback to July and even August now!! 🤯
Deep ruts and moguls? Wildly shaped volcanic rocks? No problem. Micheal Teo Van Runkle Strapped in tight with a helmet and HANS device, I watch Baja 1000 and Mint 400 vet Shelby Hall blast off at full throttle and bury my windshield in a thick dust cloud. I’m up next. I cover the brake pedal with my left foot and ease into the gas, revs climbing to 3,000 RPM before I let loose and pummel the poor polo-shirted Ford rep to my left with another shower’s worth of desert grit. There’s no time to wave “sorry,” though, before I stomp the brakes for an ABS test, four-wheel drift through a slalom cone circuit, then tackle whoops and jumps at more than 60 miles per hour. This is the Ford Bronco Raptor, and it waits for nothing. After...
https://flip.it/riJ5Zw2022 Ford Bronco Raptor Lives Up to the Hype
Ford's newest monster truck is a thirsty beast. The Ford Bronco Raptor is set to be the most powerful version of the model when it goes on sale this summer. The four-door SUV comes with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 rated at 400 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. It's also equipped with a high performance suspension system that gives it a taller and broader stance than other Broncos, plus 37-inch-tall knobby all-terrain tires. The result of all this is an official EPA fuel economy rating of 15 mpg combined, split 15 mpg in the city and 16 mpg on the highway. That means the average driver will spend $4,250 annually at today's prices, even though it runs on regular grade fuel. The most efficient version of the Bronco, which comes with a...

TFL wants to know why there is no V8 in the new Bronco Raptor.
Back in September of 2020, Ford Authority reported that Ford Motor Company had filed a trademark for “Warthog,” which we believed at the time could foreshadow the name of an upcoming high-performance Ford Bronco variant, perhaps even what most believed was the upcoming Ford Bronco Raptor. Days later, Ford Authority spies spotted a Bronco prototype with “Warthog” written on a camouflaged panel inside the wheel well, seemingly confirming this fact. Of course, that model wound up becoming the 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor, but many are still wondering what the significance of the Warthog name was to the high-performance off-roader. Now, Aerie Groeneveld, chief engineer of the Bronco Raptor, has confirmed to Ford Authority Executive executive...
Ford said the 2022 Bronco Raptor would have more than 400 horsepower, and it cleared the bar with room to spare. Ford CEO Jim Farley has confirmed the official power rating for the new model on Twitter ahead of the start of deliveries this summer. The high performance Bronco Raptor is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that's unique to the model and has special cooling and air induction systems designed to handle the high temperatures found in deserts where it was designed to be used. The only open-top SUV with more power is the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392, which has a 6.4-liter V8 with 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. The Bronco Raptor is as thirsty as it is powerful, however, with an EPA combined fuel economy rating of 15...
Not sure what to think about this. Plus this annual fuel cost at $2,350 is probably more like $4k+ with what fuel is going up to. Then again, the Bronco is a purpose-built SUV, and it's not exactly fuel efficient anywhere across the lineup. Its most efficient variant is with the 2.3-liter I4, which achieves 20 mpg city, 21 highway and 20 combined. Adding the off-road-friendly Sasquatch package drops combined economy to 18. The best a Bronco's 2.7-liter V6 can muster is 19 mpg combined. What's interesting is how close the Bronco Raptor is to its larger sibling, the Ford F-150 Raptor. Without the fuel-sapping 37-inch-tire package, the F-150 Raptor earns an EPA-estimated economy of 14 city, 18 highway and 15 combined. I guess if we...
Such is the case with the latest whip showcased by the Los Angeles, California-based, forged wheel experts over at Forgiato Designs, who have (social media) uncovered yet another tasty build that eschews conventions. Actually, that line is probably a massive understatement, just as huge as this red-and-white lifted apparition. Since we are dealing with one of Forgiato’s official marketing accounts, we initially presumed this crazy build to be entirely real. But then, digging a little deeper, we also uncovered the source – which is the digital label Innov8 Design Lab. With an abundance of virtual automotive artists running amuck across all types of social media apps, one would quickly assume this is merely wishful thinking, and...
The Baja versions of the Ford Bronco are a well-known and treasured part of Bronco history. With the introduction of the Sixth Generation Bronco Ford has created another legend in the making, the Bronco Type R. Hinting at the upcoming 6G Bronco production model, Ford’s Bronco R race prototype debuted in the desert to celebrate 50th anniversary of Rod Hall’s historic Baja 1000 win, an overall victory in a 4×4 that’s never been duplicated in 50 years. So, was the Type R the inspiration for the Bronco Raptor? The Bronco Type R Yesterday & Today - The Baja Bronco
According to Ford, the company has informed consumers that tube doors will not be available for the new 4x4 Bronco Raptor. There was no specific reason why they won't be available, but it has been confirmed by Ford. The Ford Bronco Raptor is a performance off-roader that pretty much no fan can wait to get their hands on. With its 400+ horsepower sourced from a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 and H.O.S.S. 4.0 Fox-derived suspension system, there are very few competitors that are going to be able to keep up with it over dirt roads. Giving owners the option of customizing the Bronco Raptor to their exact preference is a conclusive catalog consisting of over $11,000 worth of extras. These cover everything from more premium paint finishes and...
As we already know, it’s a no go for ordering a BRap this year. Here is an article by Edmonds- The 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor will be a hot commodity. Ford is no longer accepting custom 2022 Bronco Raptor orders. You'll have to try to buy one off a dealer lot, or wait until 2023 order books open. Are you one of the many people looking at the new Bronco Raptor and thinking whether or not to buy one? Perhaps you're trying to figure out if it's the right vehicle for you, how to justify the purchase to your spouse/accountant or waiting for our expert review from behind the wheel? Maybe you're simply indecisive? To quote Billy Wordsworth, "You snooze, you lose, bucko." A new disclaimer on Ford's Bronco Raptor information page reads, "Due...
The Brabus Crawler is a Mercedes-Benz desert off-roader that is a mean machine and has the look of a G-Wagen. But what is the difference between this luxury made off road crawler and the Bronco Raptor?? Let's check out the specs of this Brabus Crawler and find out! One huge difference it is limited to 15 units worldwide. The Brabus Crawler has been specially designed for off-road action and isn’t certified for public road use (but at this BRap production situation, there may only be 15 made as well jk). Also, check out the price at the end of this article. WHOA! If a Mercedes-AMG G63 and a Polaris RZR had a baby, it’d probably look something like this. Well-known Mercedes-Benz tuner Brabus has revealed a very limited production...
Now, he circled back to the idea of a Bronco Raptor-based aftermarket project but went full send with it. And we are not just talking about the all-black paintjob but also the complete body kit that changes most of the side profile visuals. Additionally, he also took a jab at GM’s “Crab Walk” by giving the mean and minimalistic Bronco Raptor rear-wheel steering (something that Ford will also have on F-150 trucks). Oh, and let us not forget this second attempt at “some aftermarket accessories” comes bundled with both modern and old-school ideas, as “the headlight covers remind me of the 90s Fords but also look mean in my opinion.” Well, we tend to agree. But only if this hypothetical build is digitally bundled with a Coyote V8 swap...
